Hey everyone,

Another great place to look for good import blu-ray deals is Zavvi.com http://www.zavvi.co.uk/zavvi/home.dept . They have alot of the same blu-ray movies that Amazon U.K. has except Zavvi gives you free shipping, even to the United States. I've compared prices and usually they are within a pound or two of each other but if factor in the free shipping (where Amazon charges 3 pounds to the U.S.), sometimes their deals are better. Plus, once you buy from them, you get e-mails with coupon codes (4 pounds off 40 pound purchase, 3 pounds off 30 pound purchase, etc). The last one I got just expired but I'll try to post them when I get the codes.

Here's what I have received from them recently and all for $15 or less: Equilibrium, Hostage, Bone Collector, Zulu and Almost Famous....

Hey Zombie, thanks for sharing this with us! How is the collection coming? Don't believe we ever shared stats? Mine is 300+ HD DVD, 300+ Blus, 600+ SD's & Sets, and I've started buying some Steelbooks.

Digital Babe,

Well, my addiction has been really bad. I had about 1000 DVDs but as I buy BDs (and back during the format war, HD DVDs), I then try to sell off my SD versions. So, as of now, I have 320+ BDs and HD DVDs (also upgrading my HD DVDs to BDs slowly but surely as they are released), and have approx 600 SD discs and sets left...

This week, I want Hellraiser, Sin City and the X-Men Box Set but could only afford $20 so of course I ordered the Hellraiser BD from Amazon (my all time fav horror movie, along with Hellraiser 2 and the Exorcist).

I remember last year at this time, there would maybe be one to three movies coming out each month on blu-ray that I wanted. Now, the flood gates have opened and I am having trouble keeping up. I have backed off somewhat on buying EVERYTHING day of release because I have found waiting a month or two sees the prices drop immensely on some discs (Eagle Eye, The Ruins, Doomsday, Body of Lies, just to name a few). But then there are some movies that I MUST have on day of release...

I am thinking of starting a new meeting for people called HDA (High Def Anonymous) for all of us addicted to high def and we can compare and find out who has the biggest problem (hahaha). But then again, I guess there are more expensive and much more dangerous things to be addicted to and thinking that way, I don't feel so bad.... :)

Anyway, thanks for all the updates and if/when I find out about something, I will be sure to share with all you as well...

Hey Zombie, HDA (LO)-awesome! I know how you feel. I've been putting a lot of items in my queue, due to my hesitation with transfer quality. I picked up X1 and 2 from Best Buy, as I had some Rewardszone certs. They come with movie cash codes, so you can see the new Wolverine flick for free. It was a good deal, IMO. Doomsday was cheap at Inetvideo (and stars hottie Rhona Mitra). If you've not seen the latter, you may enjoy it. The sound is strange, you may need to turn your speakers up, but overall,it's an entertaining, raw time. I also picked up some at the Warner Bro sale over the weekend, and those were $14 or so for new releases and pre-orders. The release slate has picked up. Unless I love it, or it's cheap, I don't buy it, I rent it. Netflix has been a great "try out" medium.

Blu-ray.com has a good "Hot Deals" section.... they cover many regions etc. too.... of course Amazon is often a place with the best price...... They even have a "Deal Tracker" that shows when Amazon drops the price on a title....

http://forum.blu-ray.com/forumdisplay.php?f=49

My main setup is a Mitsubishi HC-1500, with 106" screen, B&W 705s/HTM7/686 and currently replacing my old Def Tech 14" ref. sub....

"Collection" is about 75 HD DVDs and about 75 Blu-rays, with 1,200 or so DVDs

I've "slowed" my buying from the DVD days though.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 21, 2009 5:13:54 AM PDT
Hey 600-good post! Yes, the dealtracker is a cool addition to their site. Sometimes the price drops show up there 1st, since it's updated frequently. Thanks for sharing with our posters!

No prob alley, I try to do my part. I got mine for 50 I think and at the time that was the best deal I'd seen. Glad you could get a better deal on a must own title.

Deepak, apparently there is a 25/household max, but maybe a friend can help you out.

Count me in!!
I used to uses this site that shut down called dvdspot. It allowed you to log your collection. It was great because it decided title counts as well as DVDs/blus you had. For example 1 season of Everybody loves Raymond counts a 1 title. However if you got the Entire series it counted as 9 titles since there was 9 seasons. Anime is often sold in volumes so 7 volumes makes up 1 series. At the end they sell the series in a box set or a thin pack. The thin pack still counts as 7 titles because it contains the previous individually released 7 volumes. Or movie packs like the Nightmare on Elm Street Collection that containes all of the movies counted as 7 for the 7 movies- the bonus disk doesn't count.

Anyways according to those guide lines I had over 1700 DVDs (including Anime, Tv series, box sets etc.) I stopped counting about a 1 1/2-2 yrs ago. Since then my title count went up but I lost count and now I am selling off my DVDs as I get new Blus to replace them. Since October when I made the jump to Blu I hit 188 blus. More titles since this new site doesn't divide title count vs purchases. (so the borne trilogy here counts as 1 title not 3 like the old site)

I waited until the format was was over so I never bought any HDs.

With that said umm when the 1st meeting? haha

Went to Barnes & Noble yesterday, they have 40% off selected blu ray titles with an additional 10% off for members, some of the prices are still rather steep, but found some good bargains. Sale should be going on until the 5th of May.

I'm looking for Bond Steelbooks for ManWTGoldenGun & License to Kill BDs and finding only other queries. Appreciate any findings. I like steebooks.

Bravia XBR5
Apple Cinema HD Display
Panamax Power Manager Level 4
Denon BD Transport 2500
Denon AVR 3808
Energy Take 5
7000 DVDs
1000 BDs
2 Cats

Hot tip- In a rush and got to buy it at a store? BB price matches off the net, at the store, 'but only B&M stores'. Target is a B&M store that lists Amazon's prices! Do you follow? It works, and if the price goes down in a month; you get a refund if you are in BB R.Zone (free, plus you get tiny points that lead to store credit)
If you can wait, Amazon's SSS plus best way to go; remember to check the price changes at midnight (Pacific) on Mon-Tue pre-release date.
I've tried Amazon non-US sites with good results. Just check your stats (somewhere besides Amazon) for compatibility.

earmullet, any examples of prices you found, w/titles. B&N usually lists their movies at MSRP-did you find anything like or better than Amazon? We know Amazon is tough to beat, but I am just curious what this particular B&M is doing?

Depending on your location Borders is doing 50% off msrp. Its a clearance. Looks like the stores that are doing this wont be selling DVDs and Blus as well as music anymore. So if you want any BDs DVD and Cds its worth a look.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 28, 2009 4:55:15 AM PDT
Anime,

Yes, good one. I went in the other day, and although I didn't see anything I wanted, I have cleaned up at a Borders that did a store closing. It's not clear if they will drop the % more for this particular sku reduction strategy for their media, but many cd's were also 50% off, so it is worth a look, like you said. Borders Rewards is also free, and you accumulate expenditure towards "Borders Bucks". You can sign up in store.

Reservoir Dogs was $19.99 and ended $10.79 with a member card. Coming to America was $29.99 and ended up being $16.19 with a member card. Those are two examples, I can't remember off-hand what was reduced. I do remember American Psycho and Groundhog day being just a few that were also discoutnted.
